Class # 3, Inspired

Have you ever walked away from a place and been inspired to DO? That was me tonight after class. We discussed our scale drawings and discussed who our potential client might be (I've already got that pretty much thought out). We also talked about creating a design board (EEK!) for our client (I'll get to that in a minute). But after we talked about all of that, our instructor just talked to us about design, and it was awesome. She had pulled some inspiring quotes that she liked out of a few magazines and read those to us, but then we just did a lot of question and answer and it was great - I learned so much from just listening.

Our homework for this week is: write our client profile description, draw an elevation of our window wall (which is a straight on view of the wall with window treatments and whatever else might be on that specific wall). Here is a quick photo of the one side of the window wall:

(Is this wall screaming window treatments or what??)
And then we also need to come up with a design board for the client and the loft space! My mind is spinning with ideas, so I need to get down to business with that - hopefully have that board to show you next week.

This class has been a great experience and I'm so happy I listened to myself and enrolled. Took me a while to make the decision to enroll, but I'm so glad I did.

Hope you are having a great week!


  1. It's all so exciting! Sounds like you are truly enjoying it all. Like the quote.

  2. So glad you are loving this class!!! Sounds like a lot of work though, eek! When do you fit it in? Late at night? Or during nap time? I like living vicariously through you:) Really appreciate you sharing this with all of us!

    Yes, Maura's hair is finally growing! Its like it came out of nowhere. Its just starting to stick out and curl a little around her ears. I can't wait til its longer and people stop calling her a boy;)

  3. So exciting! It is so fun to read these posts, it always takes me back to my first year of classes.

  4. Great quote! It feels so good to feel insired. Can't wait to see you board. I know it will be great!

  5. So proud of you! What an accomplishment. So funny that your class is being held in such a drab room. Maybe that should be your class project!!!
